Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering McGill University ECSE-221 Introduction to Computer Engineering I Mid Term Exam Examiner: F.P. Ferrie Date: February 14 th , 2003 Question 1 (2 points) A computer uses a 14-bit word for representing signed integers. If the scheme chosen is 2’s complement, then what is the range of numbers represented? Question 2 (2 points) Two 8-bit unsigned integers are multiplied using the algorithm in Assignment 1. If the multiplicand and multiplier are 57 and 71 respectively, then what is the value of the partial product (i.e. sum) at the end of the second iteration? Question 3 (4 points) Encode the number 9.67 x 10 14 using IEEE 754 single precision representation. Express your answer in hexadecimal form. (Compute mantissa to equivalent precision of input.) Question 4 (2 points) A signal with range [-5v,5v] must be sampled with a resolution of 1.0 mV. How many digits would be required to represent this number if a base-5 system were used?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
